Parade

Manatee Performing Arts Center - March 07, 2024 through March 17, 2024

This musical drama takes place amid religious intolerance, political injustice and racial tension, the stirring Tony Award-winning Parade explores the endurance of love and hope against all the odds. Daring, innovative and bold, Parade is filled with soaring music and a heart-wrenching story, offering a moral lesson about the dangers of prejudice and ignorance that should not be forgotten. The drama is based on the true story of Leo Frank’s trial and lynching in the early 20th-century Atlanta.

Ostracized for his faith and Northern heritage, Jewish factory manager Leo Frank is accused of murdering a teenaged factory girl the day of the annual Confederate Memorial Day parade. Alfred Uhry’s award-winning book and Jason Robert Brown’s rousing, colorful and haunting score illuminate a circus of conflicting accounts, false testimony and mishandled evidence in a town reeling with social and racial tension. Isolated from the world, Leo develops a new and deeper love for his wife, who tirelessly crusades for his freedom.

Scalia/Ginsburg

Opera del Sol - March 15, 2024 through March 17, 2024

Hailed as “a dream come true” (Ruth Bader Ginsburg), a “perfect…jewel” (Opera Today), and “the kind of opera that should be everywhere” (OperaWire), Scalia/Ginsburg is a one-act operatic comedy by composer-librettist Derrick Wang about the unlikely friendship between U.S. Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia — and the pivotal moment that would change the Supreme Court for years to come. Justices Ginsburg and Scalia themselves wrote forewords to Derrick Wang’s libretto, an early version of which was published in the Columbia Journal of Law and the Arts and excerpted as a chapter in Justice Ginsburg’s 2016 book My Own Words. The Los Angeles Times wrote: “Could we please make it a constitutional requirement that no one can be sworn into office in the White House or Congress without having first seen Scalia/Ginsburg?”

Rent

Athens Theatre - April 12, 2024 through May 05, 2024

MEASURE YOUR LIFE IN LOVE.

Since its1996 debut, Jonathan Larson’s musical, Rent, has been awarded four Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize! For almost 30 years, it has been enthralling audiences with its story of love, loss, and hope set against the backdrop of New York’s Lower East Side during the onslaught of the HIV/AIDS epidemic of the 1980s and 1990s. Loosely based on Puccini’s La Bohème, the show follows a group of impoverished artists and musicians as they navigate their way through a year of challenges and triumphs, all while trying to make a life for themselves in the city that never sleeps. Over its almost four-decade long run, Rent has been praised for its frank and honest portrayal of addiction, mental illness, and disease, as well as its hopeful message of love and acceptance. The musical has resonated with audiences all over the world, and although it is now widely recognized as a theatre classic, its popularity continues to grow. Rent reminds us all that the only way we should be measuring the seasons of our life, is in “Seasons of Love!”

Not recommended for audiences younger than 14.
